Alisa Muñiz Blanchard

Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA

I am Alisa: poet, photographer, writer, priestess, seer, mother, healer and Wild Dreamer.

My life’s work is to provide creative, heart and spirit-centered business “soul-tions” and administration for growing entrepreneurs who honor sustainable community-minded visions for our world. I am passionate about providing compassionate business owners the tools they need to make their own life’s work sustainable.

While I hold a B.A. in Business Administration and English Communications with concentrations in Management and Ethics, my heart is the source of my life force. My passion for writing was ignited with the first breath of life.

Deep in my bones
it dwells,
with my song
dust and marrow.

In each of us
this vibration
imprinted
at birth

Access gained
to the activation
of ancient knowing
in the script of breath

It is my work to honor and celebrate the various moments in our human experience through my wild exploration of what it means to be alive.

May you be wild and joyous on your own journey.

Douglas Walker

Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

Douglas Walker was born and grew up in Vancouver, Canada.

His paintings include unique representations of Vedic gods along with depictions of the relationship between the human physiology and the Divine.

Douglas was gifted with the ability to paint late in life following a meditation experience of Divine Mother dancing in his heart lotus. Many who view his work report inner spiritual transformation and energetic healing.

According to Douglas, “Divine Mother is the artist. I just try to be alert to what She is telling me, and not get in the way. The less the ego is involved, the better I can express Her Light and Silence in my paintings. And of course, it helps to keep improving my painting skills.”

He presently lives with his wife Nancy in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Dwora Fried

Los Angeles, California, USA

Powerful and provocative, and at times humorous, Dwora Fried’s mixed media captures people, places and emotions under glass — literally. Composed in wooden boxes with glass fronts, the pieces ask unsettling questions about identity, beliefs and space. They recreate imaginary scenes of displacement, entrapment and isolation. The confines of these small, wooden boxes allow the viewer to share in the intimate world of the artist. Fried has been working with boxes for over a decade.

K Lenore Siner

Providence, Rhode Island, USA

I work with wax because it contributes a wonderful luminosity that I finds aesthetically pleasing. The medium also shows action and no pour can be recreated, it makes process obvious in the final product which is something I believe is valuable in our world of the mass produced image.

Thematically, my paintings are a journey to understand my own identity, particularly the edges of the personal that meet up with the realm of archetype.

I have showed nationally, including the Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, CA, Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA and AS220 in Providence, RI. I am director of Peregrine Gallery in Providence, RI and currently live and works in the AS220 artist Mercantile Building.

Karen Noel

Asheville, North Carolina, USA

I presently live in Asheville, NC. I first developed a love of watercolor while studying at the Maryland Institute of Art. This passion continued during the many years that I taught at a community college in San Diego. Creative expression has always been a joy and a focus in my life. Often, inspiration comes through a meditative connection with nature, and the paintings become a symbolic journal of my inner and outer experiences.

Lisa Adams Reed

Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

I have secretly seen myself as an artist since I was a small child. I always knew my creativity would dominate my life and in this final third I am all in! I was blessed by a stroke that left me blind in one eye a few years ago. Funny how it made me see things differently and have an even greater desire to paint the world from this unique perspective.

I discovered my favorite juicy medium when I first opened a jar of cold wax and mixed it with oil. It was like painting with yummy canned frosting! The many layers that I apply, then intuitively scrape away, always reveals beautiful surprises underneath. So much like life.

The stuff that we may have layered on and covered up make us the unique individuals that we are. If we dare peel some layers away, our colorful gifts are there in all their glory. My paintings are SoulScapes.

Pegi Smith

Ashland, Oregon, USA

Within, perhaps, a summary of my own life’s perspectives and observations (yet with no conscious agenda), I’m captivated by the creative process, swept up in the work, the medium and the opportunity.

My hope is that the final works will cause the viewer to immerse and then to emerge with the initial design in tow…moving in and out…with an intentional choice to be there again and again. Energized by life’s experiences and dreams of how it should, or could be if only…

While immersed in a project, there are times when I see it as primitive and at other times refined. Regardless, I am pressed to move forward, aware of pending modifications, yet enjoying the expression of the moment. I work from the canvas with no pre-sketching, but a more innate exploration of my own inner space, while being aware of the necessity to remain open to the spontaneous, hidden dimensions appearing and reappearing on the canvases — with an endless appreciation that color is such an obvious and important part of my life.

Am I discovering aspects of my own identity in the process. Wondering ‘is this about me?’ Maybe so. Regardless, I am there and somehow absent, while the actual painting occurs. Appeared to and appealed to by the urgent necessity to cooperate with what is developing and yet making my own voice heard as a distant director of what must be the reluctant conclusion of that one work…if another is to begin.

Thank you for the privilege of sharing my work with you.

Rand Hall

Mentone, Alabama, USA

My favorite places are the back woods and back country roads, little country restaurants and mountain tops. I always go as close to edge as possible, the edge of the mountain, the edge of the ocean, the edge of an experience.

Raven Hawk

Bonners Ferry, Idaho, USA

Raven Hawk’s magnificent artwork is a reflection and expression of the natural beauty of the mountains and forests of the northern Idaho wilderness and of the shamanic tradition that inspires, nurtures and enlightens her. She draws from a profound personal integration with the myriad flora and fauna that surround the 100 year-old homestead on which she lives. Always acutely attuned to the magic and mystery of the spirit world, Raven Hawk conveys her reverence for nature and her shamanic insights in her brilliant creations. Her love of color allows her to use the full pallet of nature’s splendor in the vibrant pieces she creates, imbuing much of the artist’s spiritual persona in every unique piece.

Sara Gately

Boston, Massachusetts, USA

I am a 2D Visual Artist and k-8 Art Teacher. I received my BA at Hampshire College in Comparative Religion and Visual Art. I earned my M. ED at Lesley University in Teaching Visual Art. I have lived in Boston for over eight years and I have never lived anywhere besides Massachusetts. I am an artist who uses line and color to express my emotions about a variety of issues, both personally and globally. I am heavily influenced by the symbolism inherent in graffiti, as well as religious iconography of every culture. Using these references for my art, I strive to create my own systems of symbols to visually communicate with the world. A world for which I am inspired by and extremely disappointed with.

Much of my art is informed by the fact that I am a sexual and physical abuse survivor, as well as live with a chronic degenerative health condition. These elements of my life contribute to my subject matter, as well as the aesthetic of my pieces.

Although I admire, respect and envy realist artists, I do not prefer to create art that represents every day reality. I am an artist who desires to bring the world of my imagination to light and share it with others to decipher, decode and contextualize. In the same vein, I do not identify as an abstract or abstract expressionistic artist. It is my belief that viewers of my art can always find something recognizable from reality. That recognizable “thing” is different for each person. It is my goal for my viewers to see things that I did not consciously place in my art, this is how I know my art has fulfilled its purpose. I am available for commission upon request.

Tahya Love

Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, USA

I am a woman walking thru this world with lotsa love in my heart and a sassy spring to my step, celebrating the divine spark of creativity in us all! Oh, it is GOOD to be alive and, I might add, to be a woman of a “certain age” whose youth has faded, yet the fine lines of a life well lived are only growing bolder!

The river of my life has presented a few occasions of turbulent waters and tears flowing. However, many, many more are the blessed days of smooth sailing and I believe my dance, frame drum and systrum practices deeply steeped in ancient traditions honoring the Feminine Divine are what keeps this vessel afloat. Blessed be.
